6224 Vā – We in this together

It’s hard to let go. Amidst political spiral—combined with urban sprawl and proliferation of post-modern consumerism—our relationships with community and the work we do must remain strong. This is my gift to the first “Indigenous Research Methods” class at UW.


Never forget the importance of fanua

For the peoples that came before us

For communities that are very much alive and fighting

For us

Now as I transcend the sacred vā that is moana,

Take great care of all that makes

You and I human

We in this together.
